Missy Piggle-Wiggle and the Whatever Cure by Ann M. Martin
Posted by Krystal Larson at 7:09 PM Saturday, October 8, 2016
Mrs. Piggle-Wiggle has gone away unexpectedly and left her niece, Missy Piggle-Wiggle, in charge of the Upside-Down House and the beloved animals who live there: Lester the pig, Wag the dog, and Penelope the parrot, among others. Families in town soon realize that like her great-aunt, Missy Piggle-Wiggle has inventive cures for all sorts of childhood (mis)behavior: The Whatever Cure and the Just-a-Minute Cure, for instance. What is a stressed out parent to do? Why, call Missy Piggle-Wiggle, of course!
New York Times-bestselling author Ann Martin brings her signature warmth and comic genius to a new character. And artist Ben Hatke brings it all to life!
Mrs. Piggle-Wiggle reminds both my and my mother of our childhoods. I enjoy the books even now and love the quirky and magical cures and Mrs. Piggle-Wiggle's wonderful way of treating children. This book centers around Missy Piggle-Wiggle, Mrs. Piggle-Wiggle's niece. Missy has the same kind and compassionate nature with a dose of humor and a dash of quirkiness. The reader will get to know children and their families (all with unusual names ranging from Rusty to Petulance). Each family has a struggle with their children (except the perfect Lacarte's, you know!). Missy always has either a potion, word of advice, or common sense approach to help the family through the "I never said it" or chronic lateness.
This book came with a two page illustration that was absolutely stunning and showed how the upside-down house looked like complete with Wag, Lightfoot, and Penelope. I loved how Missy and Harold seemed slightly in love with each other. I hope Missy sticks around and has children of her own in follow-up books! Mrs. Piggle-Wiggle was called away the entire book looking for her pirate husband, Mr. Piggle-Wiggle. I cannot recommend this book enough. I believe it can easily be enjoyed by all ages and should be part of every childhood repertoire.
